… I’m going through an unhappy end to what had, until recently, been one of the happiest periods of my professional life. … but, of course, there’s so much more to life than work … time for a change … I’ll escape, and soon I’ll rise again with the tide …
It’s just as Dorothy Whipple wrote:
“Life is like the sea, sometimes you are in the trough of the wave, sometimes on the crest. When you are in the trough, you wait for the crest, and always, trough or crest, a mysterious tide bears you forward to an unseen, but certain shore.”
(from Someone at a Distance)
Isn’t it wonderful what difference the right words can make?
